Usurper - Biography



Usurper formed in 1993 and released their first demo in 1994. Since then, Usurper have recorded 5 full-length albums, 1 mini album, 1 rarities CD and toured 17 different countries around the world. Usurper'S blend of 80s inspired thrash metal, classic heavy metal anthems, over-the-top chaos and hints of dark, melodic atmosphere have been a trademark of the band since day one. Usurper doesn't preach any political/religious ideologies, or sing about any socially relevant topics.

Topics such as: werewolves, monster folklore, alien invasions, ancient civilizations, ancient battles, cryptozoological creatures, hauntings, prophecies, time travel, and the paranormal are the essence of Usurper's words which, when combined with the music and artwork, create a strange fantasy world of dark heavy metal horror.
